Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute (QEERI)
The Qatar Environment and Energy Research Institute (QEERI) is built on a new vision and a new concept which responds to issues that affect Qatar as a rapidly-developing community by assembling teams of researchers to address challenges associated with the energy and the environment of natural and built systems, from their source to their societal impact. The multi-disciplinary research team of physical and natural scientists and engineers will integrate their knowledge to provide innovative solutions that underpin the sustenance of the ongoing unprecedented infrastructure development in Qatar, thus responding to the aspiration of the current generation, whilst protecting and enhancing the natural environment for future generations, as clearly defined by Qatar 2030 vision. Launch priorities for QERI include: Solar Energy, Water security, and Clean Air. The teams in charge of these initiatives are decidedly multi-disciplinary, in order that the problems are addressed without hindrance of the infrastructure development efforts and without undesirable natural environment impacts. Coordination with existing and emerging energy and environment research in universities, Government and other private and public entities, and cooperation with other QF research institutes and programs is an essential component of the QEERI operation.
